What are cookies?
Cookies are small temporary blocks of data that are created on users’ devices (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when visiting a website. They allow web servers to store or retrieve information when a user is browsing a website, for example, to save their usage preferences or to recognise them on subsequent visits, as well as obtain information about their browsing habits.
What are cookies used for?
The most common uses or purposes are:
- Essential technical cookies. These are used to manage the navigation flow within the website or to keep users connected. When users disable them, some sections of the website may not work correctly.
- Customisation cookies. These are used by web servers to remember certain user preferences.
- Analytic cookies. These help us and third-parties to collect information about the point of access of users and their navigation within the web, to perform statistical analyses in order to improve the structure and content of the website.
- Advertising cookies. These are used to manage the ads that appear on the website and to decide the content or the frequency of the ads.
- Behavioural advertising cookies. These help to collect users’ browsing habits to create a profile of their interests and to show them advertisements targeted to them.
- Cookies for social sharing. These are used to identify users in their social networks and thus allow them to share content.
What do we understand by technologies similar to cookies?
Technologies similar to cookies are any type of data storage and retrieval mechanism used on users’ devices to obtain information. The most common are the following:
- The local storage of the browser. Some websites use local storages called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” as well as the database indexed in the browser, to store information.
- Local storage of browser add-ons, such as Local Flash storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”) or the Silverlight local storage (“Isolated Objects”).
- The “web beacon” is a tracking technique that consists of inserting an image hosted on an Internet server into a web page (or in an email message) so that, when the browser or email program connects to said server to download and view the image, the connection is registered. This is used to confirm that a user has viewed the web page or the email message. Sometimes this image is very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of its existence.
- Fingerprinting techniques that combine series of information retrieved from the browser or the device in order to distinguish a particular user during the successive visits to websites.
What are third party cookies? Who are the recipients of the information?
In relation to the type of cookies that we use in our services, we can differentiate depending on who manages them:
- First-party cookies: these are created and managed by our own websites or web domains and the information thus obtained is directly or indirectly managed by us according to our own purposes.
- Third-party cookies: these cookies are created and managed from other websites that, although not completely under our control, provide functions and features that we have decided to include on our website, such as: interactive maps, videos and multimedia elements, buttons to share on social media, ads, etc. These cookies are under the control of the third party that provides the corresponding function.

|Google Maps||Google, Inc||Yes||http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/|
How long are cookies or similar technologies active?
Depending on their permanence or activity time, we can differentiate between the following:
- Temporary session cookies; these remain stored in the navigation equipment until the user leaves the web page; the browser deletes them at the end of the browsing session.
- Persistent cookies; they remain on the navigation device and the website reads them every time the user makes a new visit. These cookies are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, which can be short or very long.
